Every 2 months, Ndoors updates their Atlantica Online International with a new patch. This August, 18, the traditional patch notes -much more styled and readable as before- inform us about the main changes.
The main addition is the coming of a new (bow, C-Class) mercenary: Hwarang, and his related stuff (quest, skills, books).
Other changes are pretty common with Atlantica: items removed, craft materials modified, tons of minor adjustments / bug corrections.
A good point for AOP (and players interested), it's not possible to reach 100% monster info!
Loading speed has improved. Loading time for high population areas should be noticeably decreased.
People using Laptops should be pleased.
New Mercenary: Hwarang
- The quest for recruiting Hwarang has been added.
- You can start this quest with NPC [Hwarang Kim Yoo Shin] near Bulguksa (level 112).

Posted 06/18/2009 - 10:29 by Admin Muwing
On June, 17, Ndoors updated Atlantica Online with another heavy patch (381Mb). Patch notes, and several news related to the new content, are available in the news section of the official site.
If this update brings its usual part of new content (dungeon, quests and related NPCs), it's mainly a "fixing" patch, with deep modifications regarding the Free League gameplay, changes on monsters, items and crafts.
The new FL specifications imply that we're going to drop the "FL Stats" in the Character Simulator, as each main character, each mercenary, has now its own stats different from PvE. And we can be sure that next patches will adjust them.
The main work on AOP will will concern the update of monsters, items (many are no longer used) and crafts. Do you remember? It was the same 2 months ago.
- -Jackpot System has been added.
- -Jackpot license, which can be purchased at fixed price from market, will activate the Jackpot System.
- -Under affecting by this license, all your loot items will be accumulated into an item obtain window. In this window, you can press two buttons: Collect all or Jackpot challenge.
- -Collect all -> you just obtain your items into your inventory
- -Jackpot Challenge -> you can select an item. After you have selected an item, if you click on the “Jackpot Challenge” button, you can acquire the item that you have selected as a bonus.
- -Depending on values of giving up items, you can obtain extra amount of the selected item.
- -If you don’t have enough inventory space, the items will be mailed to you.
- -Maximum number of obtaining items is 99,999 even though your value of giving up item is higher.
- -Maximum number of items is 12 and maximum amount is 10,000. If you go over the maximum amount, item will go into your inventory.
- -Quest items and few other items will go into inventory not in Jackpot window.
Jackpot Licenses have been added (Jackpot License[Beg] ; Jackpot License[Int] ; Jackpot License[Adv] ; Jackpot License[Pre]).
If someone has the idea to collect data in order to find out "jackpot success rate" for each item, I don't intend to propose such a tool on AOP. These values (as independant mercenary items) usually change too fast to propose right data.
New Dungeon: Mysterious Inn
- - Dungeon [Mysterious Inn] has been added in Central Asia. (Level 120 or high)
- - You can start this dungeon with NPC [Yayul].
The mentionned Mysterious Inn is named Mysterious Saloon in game.
Three NPCs: Yayul, Modan and Sogang are involved with the Mysterious Saloon Quest. Details will come as soon as contributors complete them.
- - Remote Betting function has been added to Arena System.
- - You don’t need to go to Maximus for betting.
- - Every function is same but when you are using Remote Betting function, extra fee will be added.
- - Therefore, fee from Arena has been changed.
No link with that, but a new Tool regarding Arena is coming soon.
Chatting Emoticon System
- - Chatting Emoticon Function has been added.
- - My info> Expression, you can check the emoticon. If you move your mouse to the icon, you can see the shortcut key.
- - You can use the emoticon when you are chatting using the shortcut key or through emoticon window.
Nothing which concerns AOP here.
- - Critical Rate will be displayed in the character info.
- - First, critical rate depends on your dexterity. Second, the difference of your dexterity and opponent’s dexterity causes further alterations.
- - Basic stats (Strength, Dexterity, Intelligence) have influence on the damage depending on class.
- - Strength will increase your defense.
As these changes concerns PvE too, I'll see if I am able to find out the formula, so as to keep the Character Simulator up to date.
Defense bonus with strength is easy to find out: +2 defense per strength point.
Critical base depends on the character/mercenary class (i.e. a Spearmain and a Spearman don't have the same critical rate with the same dexterity).
- - Spells from equipment have been adjusted.
- - Withdraw bug in the Free league has been fixed.
- - Each mercenary has different physical defense properties; therefore, they will show different defense values.

Yesterday (Jan. 21), Ndoors updated Atlantica Online with a new patch whose notes are available in the news section of the official site.
As usually, AOP has been updated too, so as to match the latest evolution of the game.
- A new magic skill, Mana Shield, can now be cast by Staff mains.
- Book: Mana Shield can now be purchased at the market for a fixed price.
The skill Mana Shield has been added, the books (Book: Mana Shield [Beg] and Book: Mana Shield [Int] too, including crafting information for the second one.
Of course, Main staff characters created with the Character Simulator can also learn this new skill.
- Upon completion of a quest, players above Lv. 94 will now receive bonus experience (1% of the required experience to level up) up to 3 times a day.
- Mercenaries will receive bonus experience relative to their level.
An evolution which should contribute to reduce (a bit) the big experience gap after lvl 95.
Nothing to change in AOP.
- Two new Constantinople Battlefield sub-quests (Lv. 96+), Battlefield Betrayer and Fausta’s Escape, have been added.
- Battlefield Betrayer: Players will be rewarded with Conqueror’s Equipment Box for each stage cleared and also receive Gaius’ Treasure Box as the final reward. Gaius is located in Constantinople Palace Bailey.
- Fausta’s Escape: Players must choose either the Title Acquisition Quest item or Conqueror’s Equipment Box as their final reward upon completion. Fausta is located in Constantinople Palace Bailey.

- Increased quest item drop rate and quantity for Constantinople Battlefield.
- Increased Machine Lubricant drop rate and quantity for Recruiting Inventor quest.
- Reduced the required number of Veteran Snipers and Luxurious Clocks for the Dark Archer quest to 10.
The Quests section (still unachieved) will be updated as a consequence.
By the way, both Betrayer and Fausta licenses (used to reset related quest) have been added, with their crafting information.
- Six new titles have been added.
- New titles can be obtained through individual dungeons and new sub-quests.
- Players must complete the prerequisite Priest title quest to start the Divine Punisher title quest.

Great modifications too (especially the last point related to PvP).
Nothing to change in AOP.
- Book of Expertise has been added to the game, which allows you to obtain 1,000,000 Workload. Book of Expertise can be obtained from Goncourt by trading 10 Books of Craftsmanship.

The new books have been added within the Items database

- Craft Items have been sorted to list highest levels first.
- Skill experience points gained from dismantling equipment have been adjusted. Higher grades will now result in more skill experience points.
